  • The predecessor titles focused on travel photography, but the name change signaled a shift toward travel coverage in general.

The first iteration of BookTandL.com launches today – coinciding with Travel + Leisure Co.’s debut on the New York Stock Exchange – and is part of a new suite of branded products and services coming out of the company’s new Travel + Leisure Group business unit. Related to both No. 2 and No. 3 on this list, Travel Managers may find themselves approving more expensive flights because their business Travelers have less flexibility than those traveling for leisure. For the right return on investment, a business doesn’t have to agonize over saving a few bucks on a flight or a hotel. The term bleisure was first coined in 2009 by the Future Laboratory, a business consulting group. Parts of bleisure travel packages come out of the employee’s pocket, but employers with bleisure policies can strike deals with hotels and tour operators for discounted rates and other amenities.
